INTRODUCING...


Norton Advertisement, USA, 1973
The Commando was the last twin piston-engined motorcycle produced by the Norton Motorcycle company. The ‘Street Scrambler’ was launched in May 1971. The Commando had an innovative 'isolastic' frame, which made it much smoother through the use of rubber bushings to isolate the engine and swingarm from the frame, forks, ánd rider. But as these bearings wore, often from rusting, the bike became famous to fishtailing in high-speed turns.
